STEP 1: Application

RAS has a rolling admissions policy. The school does not have a set admissions deadline. When families learn about their relocation to Rabat, it is important to email the admissions' office to begin the admissions process. 

In order to begin the admissions process, it is essential that the office receives the following:

•    Greetings from Admissions Office 

•    Admissions Checklist 

•    School & Parent Agreement

•    Application for Admission

•    Confidential School Recommendation for Pre Kindergarten and Kindergarten 

•    Confidential School Recommendation for Grades 1-5

•    Permission to release Student Records and Confidential School Recommendations for Grades 6-12

•    Application fee $400 - the application fee is a non-refundable payment that covers the administrative costs for the application process. The application fee can be paid in cash or check at the RAS Business Office or paid using PayPal.

Please note that all required school documentation must be submitted and the fee paid before the application can be processed. 


STEP 2: Admissions Decision

RAS admission and grade placement will only be finalized after the review of the complete application, evaluation of school reports, Confidential Recommendations from previous schools, admission assessments and parent administrative interview with the Principal.

The school has a set of admission assessments for each age group that will guide the admissions team to determine whether the school can meet the applicant’s need, and, if so, the grade or program in which he or she should be placed.

For all applicants, if they are not available for testing in the spring (April/May), assessments will be coordinated with the present school or will be scheduled the week preceding school entry (Mid-August).

Please consult the following admissions guidelines:  

The objective of RAS is to provide education in English following an American educational philosophy, particularly to students who have no national schooling option in Rabat. Applicants meeting the academic, behavioral and linguistic standards of RAS will be admitted in the following order:

1.    Official U.S. dependents whose parents or guardians are employed by or under contract with the U.S. Government.
2.    Dependents of other U.S. Citizens.
3.    Dependents of officials employed by third country diplomatic corps, U.N., European Union or similar organizations.
4.    Dependents of other third country nationals who meet the language requirement and/or have previously been enrolled in an English language based program.
5.    Host country nationals who have previously been enrolled in an English language based program.
6.    Other students who have need, and have the capacity and desire for this form of education.

All admissions are conditional for one year after which the student’s progress and the school’s ability to meet his/her needs will be reviewed. 


STEP 3: Preparing for the first day of school

If your child is accepted, you will receive a checklist of any remaining documentation required before the first day of school. The list will include:

•    Student Medical History Form
•    Bus Service Application
